I've gone into his store and just pulled up a seat and sat there soaking up the vibe.

Buzzy's one of the most honest and straightforward guys you can ever deal with as well.

This. A true jem of a dude. I mail ordered a Les Paul from him when he was still on Lark Street in Albany, ran into his crew at a guitar show years later, he remembered the guitar AND my last name, he used to hand address the fliers he sent out every month.

Great store. I bought my Tungsten Buckwheat there and really needed to focus on the amp and not get swept up by that many insane guitars everywhere I looked. If I had tried one out I might not have bought the amp, which I needed.

Buddy's store was founded on lark street in Albany.
I would countless hours there just hanging out.
It was THE only place I know where you could just walk
in grab an original 57 58 or 59 burst plug into and original
Tweed twin, baseman or original bluesbreaker and just play,
No sweat, no hassle, no problem.

Want to play a pre war D28, grab it, want to play prewar O0028
It's there, a DeAngelico New Yorker, it's there, old Strats,
Old Teles take your pick, in a total laid back environment,
Like being in someones livingroom.

I would literally stop by almost everyday, and every time It was like Christmas Day with incredible stuff
coming in. You had to see it to believe it. He even had SRV strap there for sale.
It was like a museum for God sake, but nothing was deemed
so precious it was in a class case or that no one could touch it,
Play it, use it.

If it wasn't for Buzz, I would have never had the opportunity
to play any of those truely historic guitars, for hours and days
on end until they were sold.

Plenty of incredible esoteric guitars as well, crazy cool
very collectable

In return I gave Buzzy a LOT of business, never had even the
slightest issue with anything.

But all things I guess in this case had to come to an en

It's definitely not the same since he move on. But I am very grateful
for his friendship and those incredible memories.

+1. Buzzy is the eastcoast version of George Gruhn as far as his guitar knowledge is concerned and he's one heck of a guy.

He had a killer sounding 70' style Dumble combo, and he was cool enough to let me play it as loud as I wanted. :) It wasn't for sale at the time. If any of you are in the area go check it out. It is one of those MUST PLAY amps.
